Some Frequently Questions

  • Is it for Me:

    Mount Salkantay & Machupicchu Trek is a great alternative for the Inca Trail trek, better suited for more adventuresome trekkers who are able to handle more altitude and distance. Ascending to reach the famous Apacheta Pass at 4,600m/15,088ft) is not too strenuous since it is at the begiinnig of the trek, neither very steep but requires stamina and time in Cusco to acclimatise.

  • About food:

    Definitely one of the highlights of the tour is the food. It is always fresh and most of it is organic. There is always a lot to eat and lots of options including vegetables, meat, chicken, fish and other types of protein and carbohydrates. Everyone sits down to eat together and we go out of our way to accomodate all dietary requirements including vegetarian options and any food allergies. We do not provide any alcoholic drinks on the trek but if you would like you can bring your own.

  • About Camping Equipment:

    We provide 4 man tents for only 2 people and foam mattresses for everyone. Our dining equipment includes a spacious dining tent, tables and chairs, plates and utensils. We do NOT supply sleeping bags, air mattresses or walking sticks, but all can be rented from salkantay trekking. We bring an extra blanket for all our hikers for those especially cold nights. Just ask and your guide will provide you with this.
